Affiliate Nexus Laws (Amazon Affiliates)
To date a total of thirteen states have passed affiliate nexus laws. Those states include Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Ohio and Rhode Island, Maine, Missouri and Minnesota.
If you are currently an affiliate in these states, Amazon will close your affiliate account. They usually provide you warning as to when they will take this action. They will continue to pay you commissions for prior months earned and up through the date they told you your account will be closed.
If you should file as an LLC company in one of the remaining states, you can be reinstated as an affiliate.
